Richard,

Try contacting totalise.co.uk (Peter Gregory) They've recently run two
campaigns( for Venezuala and Mozambique after floods) donating 10 for each
new signing to the ISP for a limited time. I think they've donated about
120,000 in this way and may be considering a regular scheme of donations.I
believe the founder has a background in medicine so may be particularly
interested in charities like the Red Cross.
The other model you could look at is the hungersite.com (donations for
clicks
made by commercial sponsors) Personally I feel uncomfortable clicking away
here every day because all the sponsors are American companies and I know
that
I'm not giving them anything back. There must be room for something similar
on
this side of the Atlantic.
